This infographic was submitted to us by Dr. Sofa. They also provided this description:

Are you planning on a home interior renovation and want to do upholstery repairs on some of your furniture? It’s not uncommon to think that sofa reupholstery is easy. You just simply need to take the pieces apart, stuff the foam, sew the new fabric together, and voila – you have a brand new looking sofa – or so you thought. Once you zoom in on the details, you might notice that you’ve missed a few things – loose springs, uneven buttons, popped seams, warped fabric, oversized cushion, damaged wood – okay, so that’s not just a few. That’s why it’s important to consider enlisting the help of professionals when undertaking tasks such as furniture restoration. Not only do they have the proper skills and experience, they also have the right tools and equipment. Before you know it, your furniture looks better than when you first bought it. Why don’t you check out this infographic to learn more about the benefits of professional furniture reupholstery?

This is another instance of a guide that isn’t exactly an infographic. There are no numbers; it’s just a comparison to determine whether you should tackle furniture renovation on your own or enlist a professional. I do like the leather upholstery background texture and the color scheme, and think the guide makes some good points, so as a guide I would give it an A.

I’m not sure what numbers could be added to make this into an infographic — maybe percent of people that prefer DIY to hiring a professional for home projects, or average cost of reupholstering a fabric armchair DIY vs. hiring? But until some data gets in here, it wouldn’t be an IG.
